The launch of the missile has given the nation's leader Kim Jong Un a superior power over the rest that stand against the country including the United States of America and North Korea as well.

Nonetheless, North Korea is pressing ahead with its nuclear and missile-development program, holding another ballistic missile test on Sunday - one that experts said could be a new type of missile.

The UN Security Council "strongly condemned the most recent ballistic missile launches" conducted by North Korea on April 28 and May 13, the 15-nation UN body said in a statement. Those conditions do not provide much incentive for the North Koreans to try and have talks with the US. It has also regularly threatened South Korea and Japan of strikes for colluding with the United States.

U.S. envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, told reporters just prior to a UN Security Council meeting at which the UN is considering new sanctions against North Korea: "We are willing to talk but not until we see a total stop of the nuclear process and of any test there".

Protesters were rallying against Park's ties to a corruption scandal, and not against her responses to North Korea provocations or her commitment to the alliance with the United States.

"We believe South Korea will bring clear measures to improve relations", Wang said. They scrutinize shipping traffic to parse whether the flow of oil and coal between North Korea and China might be diminishing, with potentially disastrous results for Kim Jong Un's regime.

North Korea is also stepping up diplomatic actions to seek support and understanding from other countries over its missile launch.

BEIJING, May 19 (Reuters) - China wants to put ties with South Korea back on a "normal track", President Xi Jinping said on Friday, but Beijing also urged Seoul to respect its concerns and resolve tensions over the deployment of a US anti-missile system that it opposes.

US President Donald Trump has called for "far stronger sanctions" on North Korea and warned last month that a "major, major conflict" with Pyongyang was possible.

"The reality is that there is a high possibility of a military conflict at the NLL (Northern Limit Line) and military demarcation line", Moon was quoted as saying by the presidential Blue House. The two agree on the larger goal of a nuclear-free North, and both have said they are open to talks under the right conditions.

The two leaders could hold their first face-to-face talks in July on the margins of a summit of Group of 20 major economies in Germany.

He noted that communications with North Korea were terminated a year ago in the wake of new sanctions following North Korea's fifth nuclear test, and Pyongyang's decision to shut down a joint industrial zone operated on North Korean soil.
